I, like many gay men of my generation, watched and loved the Wonder Woman TV show. Lynda Carter embodied strength, intelligence, beauty and a kick-ass fashion sense. My love for the iconic character has never wavered and, over the years, I’ve collected a lot of Wonder Woman ephemera. I decided to showcase my collection on what I’m calling #WonderWomanWednesday.

Today’s collectable is a small pewter figurine that commemorates the 1987 relaunch of DC’s Wonder Woman #1. The statue is attached to the base with a background that features that issues cover. She’s pretty cool, I don’t think the pic does her justice.

Today’s collectable is a 14″ doll that I got off of ebay. She is made of medium density plastic, not rigid like an action figure, but not squishy like a pet’s chew toy. Her arms are the only point of articulation and the only marking she has is a 1988 DC copyright date, so I’ve no clue who made her. I vaguely remember seeing this doll in a card shop in the mid eighties and I believe there was an accompanying Batman (and possibly Superman) of similar design.

This mug was a gift from Jeff. Since I don’t drink hot beverages, it sits on my desk and is currently home to mini-Yeti (also a gift from Jeff).

Mini-Yeti’s boyfriend, mini-Bigfoot, is nearby on a shelf with my collection of Gordon Merrick books.

First up is this 12 inch high Wonder Woman statue from the Warner Bros. store (remember those?). I believe I got this in NY in 1999 or 2000 from the Warner store that was located in the mall beneath the World Trade Center. I keep this particular piece in my office where she stands guard atop a pile of books.
